So now is the perfect time to try out the most amazing (and good for you) mineral makeup anywhere. I *HIGHLY* recommend the Diamond Dust Powder. It’s life, er… face-changing!
And now, some notes from Robyn, the owner of Purely Cosmetics:
The sale price is valid on all orders with no minimum purchase required, and is available to all customers worldwide. To save 20% on your order, enter the coupon code BF2012 (case sensitive) on the order form in the “redeem code” box. Please note: you must complete the rest of the information on the page before clicking the redeem button, or the discount will not be applied. Don’t ask me why – I have no idea. It’s just the way the software works.
Happy makeup shopping y’all,
Don’t forget to enter the Purely Cosmetics eye makeup giveaway! The contest ends at tomorrow night, August 8th, at midnight (Eastern Time). It’s open to ALL residents except those of Italy and Mexico!
Now’s your chance to win $100 in eye makeup including 3 eye shadows, a full shadow brush kit (with brush protectors!), an indelible gel eyeliner (my favorite is Black Cherry) *and* you’ll get two cream-to-powder shadows (in Nude and Black Opal) that can do double duty as primers. Here’s a hint- Black Opal is perfect under duo-chrome eyeshadows. It’ll really bring out the iridescence! And Nude can brighten the inner eye corner, under eye or be used as a brow bone highlighter!
To enter, you need to leave your comment (follow the rules, please) over at the Purely Cosmetics “All About the Eyes” Giveaway article!
If you haven’t entered already, don’t delay!
Best of luck to all the Bionic Beauties!
It’s All About the Eyes with this new giveaway sponsored by one of my all-time favorite indie makeup brands- Purely Cosmetics!!

You’ll get one of my favorite gel eyeliners, some regular eye shadows, some cream shadows (which can be used as primers too!), and a full complement of brushes with protectors! Awesome, right?
All About the Eyes Giveaway!
What exactly are you going to win?
- 3 full sized mineral eye shadows in your choice of shades;
- Full sized Cream to Powder shadows in both Nude and Black Opal to act as a perfect shadow primer (read my review of Black Opal as a primer here);

- 5 piece shadow brush set with brush protectors!!
The entire package is worth approximately 100 bucks!
How do you enter? Visit PurelyCosmetics.com and tell me which colors you’d pick if you won! You’ll need to pick 3 loose powder eye shadow colors (*not* the cream to powders) and 1 gel eyeliner color.
Purely Cosmetics has done it again- the brand new Black Opal is a cream to powder eye shadow that also doubles as a eye shadow primer/base for duochrome, iridescent or darker shadows.
A simple eye makeup look using Black Opal
First, let’s talk about Black Opal on it’s own. In these pictures, I used Black Opal to create a very simple day look. Don’t think you can wear a black shadow during the day? Think again. Using a light hand and a soft foiling brush (I used Sonia Kashuk’s small concealer brush with taklon bristles from Target), I blended Black Opal across my entire upper eyelid and softened it into the crease.
